Amazon Headwaters Trail

September 30, 2006

The new bridge on dead-end Canyon Way off Martin Street provides direct access to the Amazon Headwaters connecting trail to the Ridgeline Trail at Fox Hollow. For a year, we have been meandering our way on the detour. We appreciate the people at Eugene Parks and Rec and the volunteers who constructed the bridge early in September. It was a joy for the six of us to hike through the woods on a well maintained trail. I was surprised how many other people and dogs we met. We were amazed to discover that there were three in our group from Iowa. Joanne Ledet, Joy Smith (both Iowa State graduates) and I shared our fond memories. This was Chris Shuraleff’s 99th trip. The trail offers a variety of possibilities for hikes on the Ridgeline Trail and Spencer Butte. The trailhead is not easy to find. Look for the yellow dead end sign on Canyon Way if you plan to discover the trail on your own.

Members: Janet Jacobsen (leader), Joanne Ledet, Sue Meyers, Margaret Prentice and Chris Shuraleff. Nonmember: Joy Smith.
